more green manures and cover crops
the winter rye i planted last week ( top photo )to fill in some harvested beds is up and running which means there's plenty of time for the root system to develop enough to allow the plants to winter-over...the winter rye and alfalfa in what was the three sister's bed is well established ( second photo )...virtually all the alfalfa has its first, well established, true leaf ( third photo ) and should have ample time to develop to the winter-over point as well...the new zealnd white clover beds are robust and continue to bloom ( forth photo )...some of the older blooms are going to seed and we will be collecting mature seeds for next season soon...and those beds are winter ready.
an industrial worker and university student (everyone needs a hobby...my hobbies have evolved and, to keep things straight, i have left my formal student career behind for reasons that are too detailed to delve into here...continuing to be a student of life however and not adverse to learning...stasis is death ) sliding down the back side of middle age...a social loner with collectivist leanings...explain that.
